Clinical Trial of Autism Early Intervention Reveals Significant Improvements in Toddlers' Social and Communication Skills

December 15, 2010
Study is First to Show Group-Based Intervention is Effective for Toddlers as Young as Two Years of Age

In a study recently published in the Journal of Child Psychology and Psychiatry (Epub ahead of print), researchers from the Kennedy Krieger Institute found that early intervention can improve the core symptoms of autism spectrum disorders (ASD) in very young children. This is the first randomized clinical trial measuring how a group-based early intervention model impacts social development in toddlers with ASD.
